Platform is delighted to announce the opening of a unique exhibition created in collaboration with The Glasgow School of Art.

As part of their academic year in fourth year, students work independently to make site specific work or deliver an exhibition. This project has involved the students to consider Platform and the Bridge as a site for a new piece of work to be developed and experienced.

A selection of students have used the past few months to develop new work in reaction to architectural sites around the building as well as considering the functions in areas such as the café, library and pool as well as leading to numerous collaborations between the students and Glasgow Life, John Wheatley College and local writers.

This has developed into an exhibition that features sculpture, photography, film and sound pieces.

Work by the following people will also be featured in the exhibition:
Lesley Anne Allen, Louise Boyce, Aimee Cameron, Noel Connolly, Alana Hillis, Jax McCauley, Kirsten McLachlan, Kirsty Miller and Kevin Wood.
